Thursday, August 28

Integrity gets the cuteness award today.  His eye is improving every day. This little fella came in with such a bad upper respiratory infection but is on his way to recovery. He's just an all around good kitten. He will be on the surgery list for Saturday.

Joey did something amazing today. I was sitting at my desk early this morning and he climbed up the kuranda tower beside the desk and halfway came on my desk. He stayed there for a good ten minutes. It was amazing to me. When I think back about how he was when he first arrived. I remember saying that I wish for him to be comfortable enough that he would cruise about someday.  I do believe he's achieved this! Makes me very happy for him.

Little Miss Samara has a new name--Miss Bouncy, JungleJane girl. This morning she decided her Dodger's Pen was no longer a pen to stay quiet in. She was jogging circles in it, going up the sides and onto the hammock. Made me gasp. It was one of those times I needed to wiggle my finger at her and tell her that that was not allowed---only slow motion is allowed for her while recovering! I don't think she's listening though!

We finally were able to complete the adoption for Athena.  We've known for a few days that she was going to a home. New mom/dad have a fairly quiet house, has 2 teenager kids that love cats. The hold up was that they were undecided about which second cat to choose. It dawned on me yesterday that she and Snow-King are great together. They've been together for a month and have always been nice to each other.  I made the first phone call this late morning. Actually, Athena is doing awesome--already watching out the patio doors.  Snow-King is not quite so brave--hasn't left the couch yet.  But, he will. His friend Athena will work for him!

The boys--Cayden, Trucker and Vernon--are doing great. They hang out together a lot. Nap together, eat together, play together! Such a joy to see this! All 3 are growing.

Remember BOXES are at 5:30 this evening and the Raffle Drawing is at 6:00!  Let's have some fun!
